With horse mad parents, I didn’t really stand a chance of not catching the bug. My father, a keen amateur rider, and my mother was a BHSAI and keen competitor - I’m told, I first sat on a horse at six months of age. At five, I had my own pony and spent all my spare time either at Pony Club events or hacking with my friends.
I grew up in a traditional equestrian background, only discovering Buck Brannaman and his horsemanship by chance in 2007. Hooked, I pursued every source of information on his teachings from visiting the USA to learn from the man himself, to attending a guest ranch and hosting clinics with his students, Joel Conner and Ricky Quinn, here in Ireland. I have worked professionally in the horse industry, studied Equine Science and I am now an Equine Physiotherapist, and I can honestly say, there is no better way to succeed with your horse than through good horsemanship.
